point. people who support president obama's re-election or who aren't sure if they do, but who despair about the prospect of any of this year's crop of republican candidates winning, for perspective it's also worth remembering that in 2008 not only did mr. obama beat john mccain, not only did mr. obama win, he won hugely. he won by nearly an eight-point margin. he won by about nearly 10 million votes. his margin of victory over john mccain was three times the margin of victory that george w. bush had over john kerry in the previous election. and the map from the '08 election makes that clear. the republican nominees for president and vice president won their home states, of course. alaska and arizona. they got deep red mostly low population states and that was it. that's all they got. they got the south. minus florida, minus north carolina, minus virginia. even though john mccain did win his home state of arizona he wasn't able to translate that into victory in nevada or new mexico or colorado. barack obama in 2008 won so big, so big that even this happened. >> hey, brian, one more thi
